The weblog description is a misquotation from Steve Aylett's Indicted to a Party: What to Do, Who to Blame.
 
The weblog title links to the "No Country Redirect" version, for whatever that might be worth.

Insert Pun Involving Tea Here

As I've remarked elsewhere:

The tea party movement is an astroturf concoction of corporate power brokers, their media enablers and apparatchiki from their party of choice, and its useful idiots are incoherent Republican dead-enders whose problem is that they're way too heavily invested in their fantasy narrative about the Kenyan Islamobolshevik in the White House. A bunch of middle class white folks reciting PR front-group talking points isn't a rebellion against fucking anything.
Matt Taibbi, Steve Kornacki and Steven Thrasher validate my skepticism and provide a counter to recent bizarre commentary attempting to equate these sore losers with the Populist movement of a century ago.
